Fidesz retains lead over Socialists in July
Hungary's ruling governing alliance of Fidesz and the Christian Democrats has maintained a lead of 51 to 25% against the main rival Socialists in July, among decided voters, Median's latest poll published on Wednesday said.
Fidesz's lead was 53 to 24% in the same group in June, the poll, conducted with a sample of 1,200 adults, showed. The radical nationalist Jobbik had 15% of support while the green opposition LMP party had 6%, same as a month ago. Among the whole voting sample, Fidesz garnered 35% of support, as against the Socialists' 16%. Jobbik stood at 9% and LMP at 4% in the whole sample. However, fully 60% of respondents told Median things were going in the wrong direction in the country and 32% felt things were going well. Six out of ten respondents reported dissatisfaction with the Orbán government's work, although a slight positive trend was recorded for the first time since October in this figure, the poll said.
